Some customers reported experiencing problems checking out through their accounts on Tuesday as the company held its second “Prime Day,” an annual promotion packed with deals for subscribers to the online retail giant’s “Prime” program.

“Some customers are reporting difficulty with checkout,” Amazon tweeted on Tuesday morning. “We’re working to resolve this issue quickly.”

An Amazon spokesperson said that issues adding "Lightning Deals" to some customers' online carts had been resolved by later in the morning on Tuesday.

Amazon was bombarded with #primedayfail complaints on social media a year ago as aggravated shoppers vented their frustrations with the selection of discounts.
